A Moment for Cupcakes

DC is known as (among other things) a cupcake obsessed city, with the ubiquitous Georgetown Cupcake dominating the cupcake culture.

As a Washingtonian, I have proudly tested most of the local cupcakerys and I will say, Georgetown Cupcake is not my favorite.

Don’t get me wrong, the cupcakes are GOOD.   I even have a picture of Georgetown’s “Signature Swirl” print on my cabinet at work.

Usually, I just like the flavors at other shops better (and going to grab a cupcake at a place that doesn’t have a 30 minute wait and a line around the corner helps too).

Today however, I want to take a moment to rave about one of their July specialty cupcakes that knocked my socks off, the Blueberry Cheesecake Cupcake.

Half cheesecake, Half cupcake, and all blueberry, this cupcake had everything I could ever want in a summer treat. It wasn’t too heavy, and the cheesecake graham cracker crust was a very pleasant surprise.

You know something’s good when you’re still dreaming about it the next day. I HIGHLY suggest you head over to Georgetown Cupcakes (or maybe have some shipped to you!?) to snag this beauty before the month is over.

Have a ‘sweet’  day,



Happy Independence Day

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed their day as much as I have. Yesterday Kelsey and I kicked the holiday off right with two of the most American things I can think of: Americone Dream and the West Wing.

Today we ventured to Baked and Wired–my favorite District cupcakery– to grab some coffee + sweets before heading downtown for some patriotic festivities.

Iced Coffee in a Red Cup feels truly patriotic

Eating Burgers;


and watching an amazing fireworks display

My pictures certainly don’t do it justice. I’ve seen the DC display 4 years in a row and I think this year was the best! They even had USA lettered ones!

Enjoy the rest of your 4th.

With freedom and fireworks,
